Suzanna jewelry is handcrafted by Susan Dorling in her Ontario, Canada studio. Our chain and metal jewelry is designed to accessorize your unique look, day into evening for any occasion.

Our materials are ethically sourced, and are made in Canada and the USA. Our jewelry does not contain nickel, and we do not use fur, feathers, leather or pearls. Any leather or suede used in our designs is vegan and we incorporate Swarovski crystal pearls or glass pearls in our designs.

I have been designing and making jewelry since 2007, inspired by my tenure with Bella Online where I was the writer/editor of Bella Online's Fashion Jewelry and Jewlery Collecting channels.
During this time, I did extensive research into gemstones and jewelry design  for my articles, and had the opportunity to interview many top jewelry designers; among them Elvis Presley's personal jeweler Lowell Hayes,and Gigi Garner, a celebrity jewelry designer and daughter of the late actor James Garner. Designing my own little jewelry collection seemed like a natural next step. So over the years I tried my hand at several different techniques, from stringing beads, working with wire and metal, polymer clay, birch bark, resin, and chain maille.
